Mind-controlled tablets in development stage

The technology giants Samsung have confirmed that they are in the process of enabling mind-control on their Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet, which could pave the way for the much easier use of smart technology by disabled people.

An article published in the MIT Technology Review seems to confirm that the company have already developed an EEG cap which currently correctly reads the brainwaves of users with an accuracy rate of between 80 and 95 per cent, and that it is now simply a case of refining the device and making it more comfortable to wear.

The news that mainstream mind-controlled tablets could be just a few years away has been warmly received by users of wheelchair accessible vehicles and other disabled people dependant on high tech products to ensure a good quality of life for themselves, with the prospect of being able to enjoy a wide variety of digital applications without even the need for touching a screen proving exciting for many.
